HOPE

Standard

There are things inside of us that we can’t see (even with an x-ray), but that we know are there, hope being one of them. Life will always find a way to bring us to the ground, and we will forever (at the very least) try to move on, however when life truly strikes you down, and your beliefs, faith, and trust are all gone, theres always that little hope of wishing that things will eventually will get better, thats one of the reasons we see those posters that read ”hold on to hope”, because even in the midst of trouble, even in the middle of fear, this hope (as little as it can be) can bring you up. So, YOU must hold to hope, hope might be the reason that lost forgotten Faith returns. Hope is God’s last resource, for you.

FEAR

Standard

Image

Now, this is, or has to be, one of the worst rivals we face, fear is just as bad as depression, you see, both work together, but somehow fear manages to attack everyone single one of us, depression is terrible, but not everyone falls into it’s claws, fear, however, fear is a threat we all face, we are all afraid of something, failure, darkness, an animal, a certain happening, etc…

Fear is a huge deal, it’s also thanks to fear that our dreams can’t become a reality, fear pays a huge role in all of us. Fear can be this HUGE terrible thing, however, it also can be a HUUUUGE help. …how? It is thanks to fear that we are able to overcome something, fear is a barrier between you and your objective, fear is a threat, obstacle, barrier, wall, but its also a KEY, fear is helpful, because fear makes us brave, we can’t be brave if we don’t have fear. Some people think that those that are brave have never felt fear, that they have never been afraid, but those people are mistaken, you see, one can only be brave once he has overcome fear, so these ”brave” men, were afraid, however, they did not give in, they defeated that obstacle, that’s what makes them valiant. You might be afraid, I know I am, but if we trust God, our goal, and in ourselves, we will prevail, and WE WILL BE BRAVE…

And for a lil’ help, heres a beautiful verse… 

Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me. -Psalm 23:4

BEING ALONE

Standard

Image

We usually live our lives by what we experience, if something bad happens, we live trying not to make the same mistake, or we try to avoid the same experience as much as we can, which leads me into my main point, Being Alone, most of the time we are alone because we want to, and we think that by being alone we develop more independance, we don’t rely on people (which is true and in some cases a good thing), but that’s not the point in life, one of the many reasons we like to be alone is because we were dissapointed, hurt, etc… But not just once, but a couple of times, maybe you’ve been through relationships or friendships, and they all end the same, you now decide to be on your own, you don’t want to be dissapointed or hurt, which is good, you don’t have to trust right away that much in people, even though a little leap of faith may surprise you… However going back to my main point, you are not supposed to be alone, it’s not good, by the way, I didn’t say that, but GOD Himself. When God created The EDEN, and Adam, He saw a problem, something that was incorrect, Adam was alone, EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT, but Adam’s aloness, wasn’t. God , created Eve, we know what happens next, the snake betrays Eve, which leads to SIN… Now you could tell me, ” You see Leo, it was better for Adam to be alone, that way he wouldn’t have been brought out of The EDEN”, In a way you could be right, but still the snake would of betrayed Adam instead, but that’s not the point, the point is, God’s perspective, and thought, that we should take into account, ”It was not good for Adam to be alone”, emphasis on, ”Not good.”, I could be reading very much into this, but am not, Peter later tells us in the New Testament ofcourse, that God sees us as ”Living Stones.”, why? In those times, stones were the tool and material of construction, that’s what we are, we are tools, we are construction material, and to build you need lots of building material, you need a community, that’s one of the reasons Churches have lots of people, that’s why Jesus had 12 followers, we are not supposed to be alone, God wants us together, sure people are what makes us doubt, people hurt, people dissapoint, but not everyone is like that, you just haven’t found the right people, or haven’t been found by the right people, as of yet… And when you do, you will be more happy, than EVER before, they will help you in times of trouble, they love you in times of hate, and they will care in times harm…

HISTORY MATTERS

Standard

Image

The biggest complain about learning history is that we must learn and remember names of people that have already died, and that apparently have nothing to do with us, ”They’re dead end of story”. Right? But what we don’t understand is that we are more connected to those people than we actually realize, we read about guys that died searching for undiscovered lands, that died lost in the sea, but those people matter, not because they were someone, but because they died trying to accomplish, complete, fulfill, their dream… (which was finding land) and that right there, is impressive, we don’t realize the importance of that, that people died for their desires, for their dreams, and we must find that as inspiration, we must fight for our dreams, even though they might be hard to accomplish who knows they might inspire someone else, And back to the subject of the ”guys” they didn’t die in vain, their death inspired others, to find and SEARCH! Becasue they died doing something that mattered, that’s why we still read about them, because their accomplishments or failures still matter to this day, and that is why we should care about them, they are able to teach us about fighting and standing firm even though people might make fun of you because your dream/goal/desire is different from theirs, but like I said, who knows, your dream/desire/goal might inspire someone else. 🙂 Keep on dreaming, searching, and accomplishing, God bless you. And don’t loose the FAITH.

A true Gentleman

Standard

Image

I want to start this year with a Poem I wrote like 2 years ago, pretty ironic to start the year with an already written thing, but I thought you people might want to check it out, thanks 🙂

I don’t dress like a gentleman because I am one, but to remind myself that am not, and that am battling to become one, because I can only be a ”true” gentleman if I have God in my heart, and for having Him I would need a Pure, clean, and perfect heart …right? And not this ugly, dirty, and crumbled heart. But actually, sadly, He indeed is there, here, surrounded by sadness, violence, depression, and sin, but why? As of now, I can only suspect the only reason He is there, here, is for me to listen to Him,

and possibly, most certainly, He’ll be able to transform my heart, into a gentleman’s heart,
and with that kind of heart I will be able to become a true gentleman.

You see, God is here to love, to protect, to forgive, to transform, and to clean.

God is in a daily battle against us.
He battles our evil nature.
He battles against the dirt that is our darkness.
He battles for our weak souls.
He battles for our lives, and hearts.
He battles against us to listen to Him.
He wants us to follow Him. 

Love you guys! Have an excellent day!
